getting money sooner?

Hi, I'm trying to save up for a puppy, and i need a TON of money, of course, if i want to make SURE I can take good care of it. I'm told i will need maybe 3 or 4 years before I have enough, i want at LEAST $4,050 before i feel safe getting one, anyway, (some of it is for in case of an emergancey) I am getting a shelter dog, of course, and I KNOW all that stuff about "big responsibility" trust me, i am doing a ton of research on this, and i have a rodent, too. I am looking for a way to earn money FAST, and it cant be proffesional, or "adult's"  jobs, im only 13, so i can't, and no pet sitting or baby sitting, can anyone tell me any crafts or something like that that I can make and sell? Serious answers please, Thank you

How Can I Earn Money?

I am young so I cannot do real jobs. I do not live in a comunity area so I can't do jobs for my neighbours nor can I sell things door to door for this reason. My parents do not think that doing chores around the house are worth money, I also cannot wash cars as  my parents know another person that does it.  I am not strong enough to do work outside. I do not trust any of the online surveys as they do not seem likely to give you money. I have nothing to sell or make to sell online or at a market/fair. I am too young to do volunteer work by myself. I cannot sell baked goods as you need a food handling certificate which are really hard to get hold of. I would love to work at a cafe and do some help there but I am too young to even do that. Please help me and thank you for taking your time to read and answer this.

Texas Windpower = Big Money

Texas is now far ahead of California, and the rest of the country, in production of wind power.From the NYTimes:Texas, once the oil capital of North America, is rapidly turning into the capital of wind power. After breakneck growth the last three years, Texas has reached the point that more than 3 percent of its electricity, enough to supply power to one million homes, comes from wind turbines.Texans are even turning tapped-out oil fields into wind farms.

How to make money as a young teen?

I am 14 years old and live in the US. I don't live in a neighborhood, so mowing lawns, housework, lemonade stand (etc.) is out of the question. I do however live near a gas station, that if after school, I can be dropped off at using the bus. Is that the best option for me? If not, then what is?

Question by guilmon420 

How do I make a crumpled dollar bill be smooth like new again? Answered

This may sound like a silly question, but if your main currency is not US dollar like me... then this is a serious matter.. Ok here's the case.. a couple weeks ago a friend came to visit me in Jakarta and he left his pouch that contains all his cards and money at the plane cabin. So all he got in his pocket was 2 x $20 and 1 x $10 ($50). Because they were crumpled dollar bills so the money changer wont accept his money, even if someone willing to take his dollars they give such loooooow rate. So, being a good friend, I took his dollar and give him my IDR (Indonesian Rupiah). So he can at least pay for his hostel and dinner, since he wont let me pay for his expenses (he could just borrow my money and pay me back later, but he's too proud to do that :p). So... now I'm left with crumpled dollar bills on my hand.. USD $1 = IDR 8500ish , so $50 is around IDR 425,000. But because they are crumpled.. so the highest rate I could get for $1 is IDR 7000, that means I'll get max IDR 350,000... IDR 75,000 lower than I should have get (thats around $9 difference). But if I can only get IDR 6500 or IDR 6000 for one dollar... then meh you do the math how much I'll get and the difference. Unless.. I can find a way to make those crumpled dollars smooth and sleek as new again. Well not exactly as new, but close enough.. Any kind of suggestion or tips are greatly appreciated :)

Economics question: What exactly causes the value of money to go down if more money is in production?

Ok, so I do know that if the amount of money in circulation increases, the value of it goes down, but what exactly makes the value go down?  Why would it go down instead of just stay the same?  In addition to this question, I would like to know how the general public and the government would know about money losing it's value, thus increasing their prices of the goods and services they sell.

How to sell projects you made?

Hey again, those of you in the internet world. I am a maker in high school, and have been wondering how makers can make money. I have repeatedly been asked if someone could buy something off me (usually an ipod charger/etc), but I somehow feel that I am cheating them or ripping them off (if I tell them a price high enough to make a profit).  Let me say now, I am not huge on actually talking to people :) so making a deal to sell something or actively seeking out people to make deals with is hard. I guess thats the price to pay for being antisocial :D One kid I know, and it makes me so mad because he is really good at it, managed to basically sell laser pointers to 50% of the kids at school for a 100% profit on each one..... Another problem I have run into is that of rights- for example if I take a design off of online, or generally instructables, and then make it and sell it, I feel as if I took some money away from the person who posted that idea. So anyone have any tips for a kid in high school trying to make some $$ on the side? I could make a business of of fixing ipod screens but I tried once and ended up having to buy a whole new ipod for a kid because I accidentally clipped a cable whole disassembling.

Would anyone like a company for students to make money selling things we like - apparel, accessories, electronics?

Would anyone be interested in a company geared for students to make money selling things we like - apparel, accessories, electronics? I have found tons of companies that say they are for students to earn money while in school but none of them were something I would use. I tried selling phone service, but found that it was a bad product. I have and had friends that sold Cutco, but none of us use kitchen cutlery, so that left us to roaming the neighborhood and selling to parents and adults. I started selling watches to my friends and classmates and was fairly profitable. The isses I came across when selling the watches were finding a decent watch, multiple designs or styles (no one wanted to be wearing the same watch as the next guy) and having enough money to buy inventory and sell the inventory before I can buy other styles. I am interested in finding out if there are any other people interested in a company that is geared for students so we can make money buying and selling things that we like and would use ourselves, like watches.

How to earn more tips working at sonic?

I've been working at sonic for about a month now. I make a little bit under minimum wage and I used to make around ninety dollars in tips a night. Lately I've only been making about twenty a night. I'm still in high school and I have to pay for my own medicine (I have various medical problems) so this is fairly important to me. I understand location is a big part (I live in a small west Texas town that is over the top religious and fairly judgmental. I have various piercings in my ears and my septum as well. I have blue hair for the summer but I don't want to change my appearance in order to earn more.) I offer to throw out trash and to get condiments, etc. But im a nervous person and have trouble just going up to people and being over the top happy. I don't understand how (as ridiculous as that sounds) so, any help with this?                                                                                                                                                                                                                             I've tried looking this up but the only results I get are for waitresses or waiters that help people for about an hour apiece. And, working at sonic, I only really help people for around five minutes or less. So many of the tips for that *ex: Introductions, checking up on them etc,* Are of no use to me. Im sorry I cant be more specific on anything. Please help, it would be much appreciated. Thank you!
